I have recently begun taking my boyfriend through the journey that is watching "Gossip Girl" for the very first time, and while this has bought a few surprises — one of his favorite characters is Vanessa?! — I am not surprised that I'm once again trying to cop Blair Waldorf's distinctively luxe style. Between the prim and proper takes on her Constance school uniform and her commitment to a novelty tight, there isn't much in her closet I wouldn't steal.
Which brings me to my next point: I think it's due time we brought back the headband. No one made hair accessories look as good as Blair did, but I'm willing to try. And I don't mean the headwraps that have been hovering around for a few seasons, most notably thanks to Gucci — no, I mean honest-to-god headbands, preferably bejeweled or bedecked with bows.
Blair's preferred brand was Jennifer Behr, so that's where I'm starting my search. Many of her styles are specifically aimed at brides, but I'm lusting after this multicolored Swarovski number. I think it would look incredibly cool dressed-down with a white button-down and sleek, high-waisted black pants, but obviously I would try to wear it Blair style: Atop a pile of perfect curls, a flirty skirt and a pair of Mary Janes. Done and done.
Jennifer Behr Golden Brass Swarovski Tiara in Multicolor, $625, available at Bergdorf Goodman
